Weekend Getaways from Velankanni
A little less than a thirty kilometres from Karaikal, lies Velankanni. The stark white Church of Our Lady is the first structure that comes to view as soon as you start approaching the beach. Nestled between cashew groves, the church was initially dedicated to the goddess of sailors, Our Lady Star of the Sea. Before you leave Velankanni, be sure to drop in at the adjoining museum, the neighbouring bazaar festooned with seashell handicrafts and toys moulded out of clay and the pristine beach.
